What makes a perfect beach? For some, it must have sand the color and consistency of talcum powder, lapped by warm, turquoise seas. Others might prefer wind-lashed shores and wild, pounding surf. This list is a selection of the most visited and award winning beaches in the world.
- Elafonissi Beach, Elafonissi, Greece
Elafonisi is something like an island and a peninsula. What makes this beach unique is that, to reach the island you have to walk through the sea. If you come to Crete on holiday, Elafonissi is a name you are sure to hear. Elafonissi is a tiny island with white sand, separated from the shore by a lagoon no more than a meter deep.
Elafonissi means “deer island”, but you won’t see any deer on the island or in the surrounding area.
